Acupuncture involves the painless insertion of very fine sterile single-use needles into specific points on the surface of the body. The aim is to assist your body's physiological functions or modify the perception of pain.
Remedial Massage and Acupressure
Massage helps to relieve stress and tension in the muscles and can include techniques such as myofascial release and PNF stretches.
Small electrodes can be attached to the acupuncture needles and this is mostly used when treating painful conditions.
Point Injection Therapy
The use of point injection therapy involves injecting small amounts of salt water or saline into acupuncture points and is used for treating more painful inflammatory conditions.
Herbal Artemisia sticks are burned around the acupuncture points to warm the area to ease pain and restore balance in the body.
Infrared Heat Lamp
Once the acupuncture needles are inserted, Infrared heat lamps are used over the area to increase circulation in the muscles and promote healing. People find the heat generated very soothing and relaxing.
The application of suction cups helps reduce muscular tension and pain. Soft silicon cups are also used as a form of myofascial release.
The technique uses a gua massage tool to improve circulation to the soft tissues.
